Hair grows in three stages: anagen, telogen and catagen stages. The laser energy destroys the follicle when the hair is in the anagen stage, never being able to produce another hair. The energy light from the laser sees only melanin therefore sees only dark hair, not grey, blonde or red. The energy light from the laser sends the energy down the shaft of the hair to the follicle where it is attached and growing in anagen stage and therefore destroys that follicle. Depending on which area you are lasering will depend on what percentage of hair follicles you are destroying at each treatment.
Patients will feels a snapping much like an elastic band snapping against the skin. Some areas are more sensitive than others. Ice and soothing techniques are used to reduce the discomfort.
Most patients need 3-6 treatments for complete reduction, depending on what area they are lasering.
